Leishmaniasis is one of the most neglected tropical diseases. Each year it infects more than two million people in 97 countries. To date, there are no available vaccines to prevent the disease. Researchers at the University of Antioquia in Medellin, Colombia, are running the Drug Search for Leishmaniasis project on World Community Grid to identify drug compounds that could possibly be developed into treatments for Leishmaniasis.

Few know this, but really this is a second phase, evolved from the Discovering Dengue Drugs Together, Phase 1 project at WCG, where a bolt-on 5th target was added. See http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/printpost_post,225885
